Forget the frosting! I celebrated my birthday by treating myself to a yarn cake! Beautiful new skeins of yarn take the shape of a birthday cake that any crocheter, knitter, and yarn lover would gladly dig into! Fat-free, zero calories, perfect as a birthday gift or a cute centerpiece at a party. I even crocheted a little candle to top it off (pattern below).
I used 11 skeins of my favorite yarn: Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice. 7 skeins make up the bottom layer (6 in the round and one in the middle) and 4 more skeins for the top layer. I placed everything on a cake plate.
Use a loop of scotch tape (or double sided tape) to hold the yarn skeins together. This helps them stand up and stick together as bunch. Then take a long piece of Wired Edge Ribbon (21/2 inches x 10 yds) and wrap it around the middle of each layer and tie a bow. The two layers aren’t connect to each other.
